Default 2005 Pt Cruiser Gt - 5 speed

Hi All!

I post every other week it seems like but I appreciate everyone's help.
It's about 25 where I live right now.

Recently had a leak in clutch fluid patched and refilled by dealer. Then when out of town, clutch wasn't engaging. Local mechanic I trust said it was air pocket in fluid and sent me on my way for free!

Problem now: I put Pt in reverse (5-speed) and the clutch releases right off the floor and sometimes when it's still on floor. Car idles really rough and it's stuck in reverse. I shut it off, turn on and I can get it into first. Once I take it out of first I cant get it into any other gear. Shift cable and clutch were done 20000 miles ago. Thanks!

Woke up for work and had a puddle of clutch fluid AND coolant in my driveway. Only spent $800 at the dealer for a new oil cooler, coolant lines, and patch on clutch fluid (They had it for 3 weeks, oil cooler has to be shipped from San Antonio). Guess I gotta go back.. Unreal

Tell the idiots at the dealership to keep it a couple of days and to leave the cap off the clutch master cylinder for both days. That'll let the air pocket bleed off.

They now told me it is the slave cylinder. $1100 to repair. I have model "S" VIN #. Local shop in my town did clutch 20000 miles ago and for some reason didn't replace slave cylinder! Trading this hunk of junk in!
